ArmA Gets a Gold Edition, New Expansion Pack

Atari has revealed plans to publish ArmA: Gold, a compilation retail and digital download package featuring Bohemia Interactive’s original ArmA: Combat Operations military shooter that came out earlier this year and a brand new expansion pack subtitled Queens Gambit (which has already been released in Europe as of September). No US release date or pricing details have been given as of yet (like if the expansion will be released by itself at a cheaper price for those who already own the original), but whenever it does come out tactical shooter fans will be in for seven more missions in a campaign set 18 months after Combat Operations following six new characters, complete with the usual weapon, vehicle and multiplayer add-on content. As soon as any additional release plans are announced, I’ll check back in with the news. For now, enjoy this first batch of screenshots.

“ArmA: Queens Gambit offers players an exciting new campaign with seven more missions for an exceptional combat simulation game,” said Todd Slepian, Producer, Atari, Inc. “Fans of Arma: Combat Operations, hailed as ’… the most complete and perhaps even the best combat simulator out there’ by GamingTrend.com, are sure to enjoy this extensive expansion. Additionally, gamers can check out the original and expansion with Arma: Gold.”
